Buhari Re-appoints Idris Musa  (PHOTOS)

President Muhammadu Buhari has given his approval for Idris Musa reappointment as the Director General of the National Oil Spills Detection and Response Agency (NOSDRA)

This online news source is aware that the Ministry of Environment tweeted about this on Monday using the account @FMEnvng.

Following Musa’s outstanding success over the previous four years, he was reappointed.

Musa was initially chosen on April 1 of 2019 for a four-year initial term. The announcement claims that the reappointment is effective as of April 1, 2023.

“President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the renewal of appointment of Mr Idris O Musa as Director General of NOSDRA for a second and final term of four years.”

“Prominent amongst these were the digitalisation of the agency’s records, review of various forms for oil spills management processes, and the review of environmental sensitivity index map.

“The map is used in the oil-producing areas to protect the vulnerable, sensitive and fragile ecosystem of the Niger Delta region.

“He also carried out many awareness campaigns on the dangers of vandalism of oil facilities.

“Musa also revolutionised online and real-time processing of environmental compliance documents and management as well as the National Gas Flare Tracker and Oil Spill Monitor.

“These are part of efforts to showcase transparency in environmental management in the oil and gas industry,” the statement read in part.

Newsone Nigeria reports that the statement added that NOSDRA has started the process of tracking methane, a greenhouse gas that raises the earth’s temperature and distorts the climate systems across oil-producing communities in Nigeria.

“The Agency has commenced the preparation for the tracking of methane in the oil producing areas in Nigeria,” it said
